Caltech Upgrading Demo Cluster with Intel Xeon-Phi x200 Processor

Nor-Tech reports that Caltech is upgrading its Nor-Tech demo cluster with Intel Xeon Phi. The demo cluster is a no-cost, no-strings opportunity for current and prospective clients to test-drive simulation applications on a cutting-edge Nor-Tech HPC equipped with Intel Xeon Phi and other high-demand platforms installed and configured. Users can also integrate their existing platforms into the demo cluster.

Nor-Tech & ESI Partner on Affordable Clusters for OpenFOAM

“We saw a disconnect in the industry between rapidly growing organizations that could really benefit from HPC clusters and the solutions that were on the market,” said Nor-Tech President and CEO David Bollig. “Our goal was to develop a powerful, scalable cluster that was in itself affordable, but also didn’t require hefty, recurring software licensing fees.”

Simulationclusters.com Shows ROI from Intel v4 Processors

Today Simulationclusters.com announced it is now running Intel’s E5-2600 v4 processors. A site for real-time demonstration of the ROI of upgrading from a workstation to an HPC cluster, Simulationsclusters.com is a collaboration between Nor-Tech, Intel, and Dassault Systèmes that showcases benchmarks with the new processors that show dramatic performance increases and significant cost benefits.

GPUs Power Low-Cost Supercomputer Solution from Nor-Tech

“We figured out a way to get consumer-grade cards into a 4U chassis,” said Nor-Tech’s Vice President of Engineering, Dom Daninger and his team tested and retested the prototype until they were satisfied that their solution would be successful for most applications. “The result is a niche product that allows nearly all organizations to take advantage of GPU supercomputing capabilities—in essence supercomputing capabilities at an unheard of price point.”
